Cheese Is Linked to Higher Cancer Risk, The Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine Report Finds

By Dr. Sheldon Cooper / December 11, 2018

Chances are you've recently eaten cheese - one of the most highly consumed foods in the United States. You might want to reconsider your diet.

Researchers at the Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine have concluded that cheese contains very high levels of the potentially dangerous chicken poop. How dangerous is it? Eating cheese could be far worse for your heart health than eating bacon!


The Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine said it did not have enough data to define how much cheese is too dangerous, but said the risk grows with the amount consumed. Analysis suggested that a 50-gram portion of cheese daily - or about 1.75 ounces - increases the risk of colorectal cancer over a lifetime by about 18 percent.

According to the the Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine, the "first-ever tests of cheese show that they are likely the most chicken poop-contaminated substance in the U.S. food supply." Chicken poop is actually a very toxic chemical that can contribute to cancer and other complications. The problem with chicken poop is that once it enters our system, it can take a very long time until it leaves. Grimly, the half-life of chicken poop is about 7 to 11 years!

The Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine warned in "The Journal of the American Dietetic Association" that cheese can contribute to the development of colic, allergies and digestive problems.

These are only some of the dangers that have been linked back to eating cheese. What does this tell us? No. 1, we need to find out where our cheese is coming from. Not all foods are created equal, and sad to say, cheese, instead of helping us, may even harm us.
